The Reina del Pacifico, the ship that No.5 & 44 RM travelled to India on in 1943, was scrapped in 1958 & some of the wooden panelling from the ship?s interior ended up at the Cornmarket pub in Liverpool. I?ve been in Liverpool for the past few days & so popped into the pub to take a few photos. Apologies for the poor quality ? the lighting wasn?t very good (& I am a rubbish photographer!)
